2008 Ford Taurus????
Ford is supposed to announce the news tomorrow in Chicago.
The revised Ford 500 will be renamed Taurus.
That is one weird and amazing move.
I guess it is better than sticking with a mistake and not admitting they were wrong in the 1st place.
But changing a car’s name in the middle of the cycle is still strange.
And the car isn’t that different from last year.
And I’m not even sure the Taurus name is that great anymore. To most people, it just means “cheap rental”.
I guess they can get away with it by advertising the hell out of it. Most people out there have never heard of the 500 anyway.
They might think, “hey, I didn’t know there was a new Taurus!”
What do I know. It might work after all…
